We're happy to announce that we just started to work on three new interdependent online resources: the Damaged Earth Catalog, the Permacomputing wiki, and the permacomputing workshop series!

///

Damaged Earth Catalog

A growing online catalog of the different terms in circulation, used by communities of practice, in relation to computing and network infrastructure informed by ecological ethics, degrowth, resilience, repair, and minimalism. Currently developed by @l03s as part of her PhD research.

Permacomputing wiki

A new wiki about permacomputing that aims to expose its principles, present and discuss the concepts and jargon required to engage with permacomputing, and maintain a repository of related projects. Currently facilitated by @viznut and @320x200 open for contributors!

Permacomputing in the Arts

A workshop series that will be developed throughout end-2022 and 2023 as an onboarding course for permacomputing practices in art an design. The workshops will be made available as an Open Educational Resource. Developed by @320x200 as part of a postdoc research on the topic.

The torrent for the final PDF and all the source/assets files of FLOSS+Art (2008), an edited collection of texts about Free/Libre Open Source Software () and and , is once again seeded!

Big thanks to @hellocatfood@mastodon.social who motivated me to do so :)

New essay: Seven theses on the Fediverse and the becoming of FLOSS

Recently, @rra and I have been working on an essay highlighting questions about the and how these are getting entangled with practices. From software production to structure and governance within alternative social media, online communities and politics.

The text follows a multi theses model, to map the different things we've been looking at and publish the current state of our research.

It is the closing chapter of a new publication from INC/Transmediale (networkcultures.org/blog/publi)

PDF of the text: monoskop.org/images/c/cc/Manso

Feedback welcome. We're planning to publish an online version with more references!

https://itch.io/b/1472/indie-bundle-for-abortion-funds

So, since Z-lib doesn't allow mirroring, someone decided to mirror it anywat. 7 (seven) Tb of books, people.

Hi all! 🌊 Recently moved to @dcwalk from @dcwalk@mstdn.io so doing a here.

I am a researcher and designer interested in how to build lasting and transformational alternatives to existing infrastructures, in the past this has included data stewardship, networks, and movement organizing. Now I am focused on the practices and language of low carbon networking.

Currently packing up my life and moving across the country, hoping to camp and spend some time offline along the way ⛺

📆 I'll be at NordiCHI in October this year running a curating/fermenting data workshop with brilliant colleagues Magda Tyżlik-Carver and @lukasfx. If you're planning to go to the conf. or know people interested in going, please check out our CFP just fresh off the press & spread the word:

✧✧✧ fermentingdata.net/nordichi22/
✧✧✧

🥬 We'll be curating data collaboratively, thinking about making data collection & data structuring practices more visible, and *importantly* using fermentation processes literally and metaphorically to guide our workflows.

Today!

help pixel pay for college :boost_requested: 

hello friends

I just got my final bill for my last year of college. $17,200. I only get about $2,000 in loans. That still leaves $15,200.

I currently live with my transphobic parents and cannot sustain living here after school. I've paid for all of my schooling through working up to five jobs at a time up to now, but with each year that passes by, the school has been rolling back my financial aid and it has been very difficult to keep up. I'm still living on a meal a day.

If you'd be willing to toss coin to a neurodivergent, queer, trans, east/southeast asian person, my handles are below.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me thus far.

Inventory time. We're resuming work on the limited edition. Going through all the parts to recycle that we've been gathering.

hi everyone, I’m Louis !

I am an artist

the art I make is visual™ and digital™ (and also sometimes poetry™) (and don’t really like categories, hence the ™s) (but I like parenthesis). I like to say that I am working with and about computers, it is my main playground. I consider myself as a sculptor, but I do not really make sculptures, it is more because shapes and materials are of special importance to me.

computer stuffs obviously ! free, open, accessible, shared...

besides that, I am an enthusiast amateur cook, fermenter, brewer, forager. I ride and repair my bicycles.

I live in France (Rennes).

"The British home secretary has formally approved the extradition of WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange to the United States, in the latest development in a dangerous and misguided criminal prosecution that has the potential to criminalize national security journalism in the United States.

Previously, a major coalition of civil liberties organizations, including Freedom of the Press Foundation, implored U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to drop the case against Assange in the name of protecting the rights of journalists everywhere. So, too, have the editors of major news outlets such as The New York Times and Washington Post.

By continuing to extradite Assange, the Biden DOJ is ignoring the dire warnings of virtually every major civil liberties and human rights organization in the country that the case will do irreparable damage to basic press freedom rights of U.S. reporters."

Hi folks,

A colleague of mine is running a survey on Sustainability in Software Practices.

If you are a "software practitioner", it would be great if you could complete it.

Thanks, and boosts welcome!

Every Thursday at the office, I go to the market. fresh fish, cheap and good fruit and vegetables. Sometimes I buy fries.

Should I put Full Snack Developer on my resume?

This weekend we celebrate the work of 10 graduating students with an exhibition, presentation, workshops and (of course) a party! Join us for WALKIE TALKIE in Worm, Rotterdam on Friday (18:00-2:00) and Saturday (12:00-17:00).

More information about WALKIE TALKIE can be found on the website of Worm: worm.org/production/xpub-pzi-g

And if you're curious to explore the projects of this group, you can visit: project.xpub.nl/

Is it heresy to ask on mastodon whether there is overlap between #permacomputing people and fidonet? The protocols need to be de-ASCIIed but there's a lot of experience there with offline-first networking and maximizing utility from constrained resources.

MIT press is relaunching the Software Studies book series and I am very excited to work together with other fabolous co-editors Wendy Chun, Jichen Zhu and @nwf.
Check out the press release: mitpress.mit.edu/blog/mit-pres and our thoughts on the new series: computationalculture.net/softw.
Feel free to starting sending proposals our way.

Check out the new manifesto here too: gitlab.com/siusoon/refresh/

Academic books about activism and struggles 

Hi, all! I'm interested in getting recommendations about recent books focusing on activist struggles. Particularly books that theorize what "struggle" means. I am most interested in struggles for justice, so the books are about Black, indigenous, LGBTQI2S, and anti-capitalist struggles, specifically, all the better!

What's good in this realm? Boosts appreciated.
